Subintimal arterial revascularization has a high technical success rate, but requires the ability to navigate between different planes/lumens of the arterial wall. While most failures are attributable to the inability to re-enter the true lumen distal to the occlusion, there are times where entering the subintimal lumen can be challenging as well. This chapter describes alternative strategies for both entering and exiting the subintimal plane during lower extremity revascularization.
